Lovely show.Thanks boys.
Subject: are we listening to the same show??
I understand that people have their fav eras or some just like the '76 sound but how is this a 4+ star show?? Lets get some perspective and save the 5 stars for when the band is ON and tight and inspired.
Sound quality is great tho, with keith maybe a bit too loud.
Subject: Playing in the band. Day break on the land.
Subject: Nice show
This show has one of those bone chillingly amazing feels. No flubs, all buisness.
Mission in the Rain is simply the best live version found here. Jerry, Donna and Bobby sing it more beautifully than any other rendition of JGB, allthough those are good as well.
Every single song has on and Keith is not wasted and is playing beautifully. How this full show went under the radar of Lavata's collection or the download series i'll never know.
Grateful to own this SBD, anyone want it?
Subject: Love this period
Sound is strong and the energy seemed really happy after their sebatacle, they had some great new tunes and were ready for hitting the road again.
Subject: Row !
Some folks can't handle that waaaay laid back groove, time and place man time and place
Speaking of Donna, she is starting to sing better, admittedly her wails from 72-74 did distract from songs. She gets really good in 77 and 78, then tails off in 79 from doing too much pot and coke.
She is still beautiful and I'm so happy she was a member of the dead for almost a decade.
Subject: Row Jimmy...
Subject: pure love

Subject: A Good Run
With this show and others from this year, the last songs are not throw-aways. This One More Saturday Night is musical, the vocals are right on, Jerry and Keith are as tight with the band as in any song of the night.
If you like this one, you'll also like the 6/27 show. It's an audience recording-- a good one, though the sound is not as good as this. But I think that show is even better than this one.
If you're not familiar with the 1976 sound, listen these two shows at least twice each. You'll gain an appreciation for yet another unique-sounding and top-notch Grateful Dead era.
Subject: Sloooow and Sweeeet

Subject: NONE From The Vault?
Subject: Mission in the Rain
said to be the last one they did, I can see why! When you play a song that well it must feel like everything that needed to be said has been.
Subject: opinions are like a**holes.....
i totally disagree with the last post...this is a STELLAR show.....the songs are played VERY well...on point with very few flubs....DO NOT PASS THIS UP! great sound......
Subject: A little disappointed...
Subject: Tennessee Jed
Subject: My First Tape!
Alltime Jed. Top LL>S. Row Jimmy on a par with the best, and thoroughly jammed. All in all, one of the greatest Dead 1st sets.
(I don't give out 5's much....this is one)
Subject: This is excellent
Subject: Funk'n '76 Lovin' the Groove!!!
Enough of my preaching about the virtues of DEAD YEAR 1976, the reason I chose this show is because I figured if I was going to rant in such a manner I 'd better have the goods to back it up. A great show and an incredible soundboard. Such a kind groove throughout. This and a few other shows (6/9,7/18,9/25,10/9,10/10,10/15,12/31) are the best of the year, and what a year!
This was my first review and was something I have been needing to get off my chest for a hot minute. In the future I will try to focus more on the particulars of the show itself rather than using the show, as a whole , to prove a point or as an example of some grandiose ideal. Anyway, this really is a great show... many highlights(Mission...,Row Jimmy,etc.)too many to mention...worthy download...I was four in ' 76...I will shut up now. Namaste!
Subject: Playin one of the best
Subject: breezy fluffy, poffy, poffy, poof, intricately splendid and spectacular
Subject: Quite possibly, the most underrated Dead show of all time!
The songs melt, and I'd go so far as to say this is a top 5 of all time show.
The highlight is Row Jimmy, during Jerry's second lead exploration (4:00-6:00). He turns his pedal steel into a pure extension of his soul. His ability to communicate directly from his creative internal energy is crystallized in this musical dialogue. I have no doubt this is the best Row Jimmy the Dead have ever played. Hands Down!
Subject: Good show. Very Mellow
